I have to say that brownies are my favorite dessert bars. They are quick and easy to prepare when craving chocolate! I like to play with various ingredients to justify my excuse for baking up a batch. This recipe indulges in chunky pieces of walnuts and Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa but it is a matter of preference. Your choice of chocolate or nuts can be substituted.

How to Make Chocolate-Caramel Swirl Brownies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350ﹾ. Spray a 8"x8x"2" baking pan with nonstick spray; line with parchment paper leaving excess hanging over two sides of the pan.
  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan on the stovetop. Stir in sugar and remove from heat. Allow the butter to cool slightly; stir in eggs and vanilla extract.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine cocoa powder, flour, salt, baking powder and walnuts. Add the dry ingredients to the butter, sugar and egg mixture until combined; do not overmix.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. Drizzle warmed caramel sauce over batter; lightly swirl into mixture with a knife; repeat process with slightly warmed fudge topping.
  5. Bake approximately 28 - 30 minutes, or until a cake tester or toothpick inserted an inch from the center comes out clean. Cool brownies completely. Use the parchment paper edges to lift brownies out of pan and cut into squares.
  6. *Note: Warm sauce and topping in microwave approximately 15 - 20 seconds.
  7. *Note: Using only 3 eggs will make a more "chewy" brownie!
